From a massive first week ARIA #8 debut of their album LIFELINES to their Australian album tour in March and April 2017, I PREVAIL‘s story and success in Australia is only growing, and at an exponential rate at that! The tour, presented by Destroy All Lines, Chugg Entertainment and Hysteria Mag, is almost entirely sold out, with only a handful of tickets remaining for their second and final Melbourne 18+ show at tickets.destroyalllines.com.
Now comes the announcement of the support acts for the hugely popular tour, with Melbourne legends Void of Vision joining the entire tour as main support. Void of Vision are signed to UNFD/Rise Records and will be returning to home soil for this tour, after a February/March European tour supporting Chelsea Grin, Betraying the Martyrs and fellow Aussies Make Them Suffer.
Local supports include Finders (Perth), Stepson (Brisbane), Justice for the Damned (Sydney Lic/AA Show 1), The Beautiful Monument (Melbourne 18+ Show 1), Belle Haven (Melbourne AA), Harbours (Melbourne 18+ Show 2), and Belle Haven (Sydney Lic/AA Show 2). Australian audiences have been particularly supportive of the record – Lifelines debuted at #8 on the ARIA charts in release week and stayed in the top 20 for consequent weeks – as well as every single on the record at the top of the iTunes metal and all genres charts for months leading into the album’s release. Amazingly – Lifelines is still the #1 album in the Metal Charts 5 months later and all three singles are in the top 10 in Metal. Judging by Australian fans’ (of which there are over 60000 on Facebook!) reactions to the record, I Prevail were a major breakout act in 2016 in Australia – and this nearly sold-out tour cements that fact for future albums and tours down under.
